Easter Lamb

4.1 based on 8 ratings

What You Need:

  • Popcorn
  • Hot air popper or microwave
  • Bowl
  • White paper plate
  • Glue
  • Black construction paper
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Googly eye

What You Do:

  1. Help your preschooler use the hot air popper or microwave to pop the popcorn. Be sure to make a little more than you think you will need since there will almost certainly be some snacking taking place. Let the popcorn cool while you complete steps 2–4.
  2. Cover your work area so that it is easy to clean up after using the glue.
  3. On the black construction paper, show your child how to draw two rectangular lamb legs and an oblong lamb head.
  4. Cut these pieces out and tape or glue them to the plate.
  5. Help your child glue the googly eye in place on the lamb’s face. 
  6. Now it's time to cover the lamb’s body with popcorn. Help your child add glue to a small area and have him cover the glue with popcorn. Repeat until the lamb is covered with popcorn.
  7. Let the glue set while you take the leftover popcorn to a good snacking spot.
  8. When you are done snacking, turn the lamb over to see what falls off. Reglue these pieces of popcorn and let dry.
  9. Hang in a safe place. You don’t want your pets snacking on the Easter lamb!

You could continue the project by creating a whole flock of sheep to accompany your lamb. If you want some variety, use dessert plates for the bodies of smaller lambs.
